  1. High
  2. high
  3. low
  4. pressure gradient force
  5. air pressure
  1. a Drives air from areas of higher barometric pressure to areas of lower barometric pressure, causing winds.
  2. b Area of high pressure where wind will move away from, associated with dry and nice weather and air that is sinking
  3. c an area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air
  4. d an area in which the barometric pressure is greater than that of the surrounding air
  5. e the weight of the air above an object

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Area of low pressure where wind will move towards, associated with cloudy and rainy weather and air that is rising
  2. the movement of a fluid, caused by differences in temperature, that transfers heat from one part of the fluid to another
  3. narrow belt of strong winds that blows near the top of the troposphere across the US
  4. The way Earth's rotation makes winds in the Northern Hemisphere curve to the right and winds in the Southern Hemisphere curve to the left.
  5. an instrument that measures wind speed

5 True/False questions

  1. Occluded Fronta front where a warm air mass is caught between two colder air masses and brings cool temperatures and large amounts of rain and snow

          

  2. aneroid barometeran instrument that measure air pressure, An instrument that measures changes in air pressure without using a liquid. Changes in the shape of an airtight metal box cause a needle on the barometer dial to move.

          

  3. Fronta boundary between two air masses of different density, moisture, or temperature

          

  4. Mercury BarometerAn instrument that measures changes in air pressure, consisting of a glass tube partially filled with mercury, with its open end resting in a dish of mercury. Air pressure pushing on the mercury in the dish forces the mercury in the tube to be higher.

          

  5. isobara boundary between two air masses of different density, moisture, or temperature
